Horrible narrator, great story

Where does Star Trek: Into Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Good story to go along with the movie! Yes, there are plot holes big enough to fly a Bird of Prey through, but hey! -- it's still entertaining and fun.


What didn’t you like about Alice Eve’s performance?

Alice Eve -- Carol Marcus in the movie -- was a questionable choice for narrating this story. I can't blame her -- she probably did the best she could. I fault the production team and director for signing off on poor narrative choices and inept characterizations. She didn't even bring any life to her own character's dialog. And worst of all, WHO in the world thought it was a good idea to represent Khan -- one of the most elegant antagonists in the Star Trek universe -- as a sneering, cackling cartoon villain? I almost expected him to offer Kirk a poison apple. Ack! I had to work too hard to overcome the narration and concentrate on the story.

This presentation is particularly disappointing after the terrific narration by Zachary Quinto for the first novelization of the new series.
